What our customers are saying

We were looking for a time slot management system for incoming goods at our warehouse locations and quickly realised that Transporeon is the absolute specialist in this area in Europe. In fact, shortly after the start of the project, we already reduced the waiting times of the trucks at our ramps considerably, smoothed out peak times and now warehouse capacities and staff are managed and used even more efficiently.

Peter Goer,
Project Manager, Metro Logistics

We now have excellent waiting times, cleared in under 20 minutes, and we know very well what happens at our ramps.

Thomas Kerkenhoff,
Managing Director, Edeka Handelsgesellschaft Rhein-Ruhr

For Denso, better management of outgoing flows has led to a 30-40% reduction in administrative workload, and there has been a drastic reduction in waiting times on the carrier's side, which could previously reach several hours. Today, however, the waiting time is only the time necessary for unloading.

Sonia Panza,
Head of Logistics, Denso Thermal Systems

We decided to choose Transporeon for the speed and simplicity of implementation and integration into our Distribution Centers, because the platform is easy to use also by the carriers and the continuous and guaranteed assistance even after the launch phase of the project.

Enrico Frigo,
Operation Manager, CPR System

Thanks to Time Slot Management, the warehouse knows well in advance what, how much and when goods should be loaded. This helps us to organize the warehouse more efficiently, speed up our processes, and make sure products and goods are prepared on time."

Iwona Kowala,
Transport Manager S.A., Amica

Like most large shippers, we found that relatively little went on in the mornings. In the afternoons we suddenly had up to 20 trucks per hour and there were considerable delays. With the platform, we were able to reduce truck waiting times substantially, because what is most important to us is punctual delivery and thus better customer service.

Dr. Ernst-Martin vom Bovert,
Head of Logistics, Waelzholz

We chose Transporeon to optimise warehouse activities and achieve transparency and traceability in all communication processes with our carriers. 

Miriam Cavallo
(Head of Central Logistics), Verallia (Italy)

We now know in advance when each truck is going to arrive. That’s a huge advantage for us because it means we have clarity about when raw materials will be delivered and goods dispatched.

Volker Wollschläger,
Logistics Manager, Smurfit Kappa

As our airline customers are increasing their volumes since 2012, time slot management came up as a ‘must’ to help us guarantee better time management and continuous improvement of our activities.

Valentin Wawzyniak,
Methods and Process Engineer, LuxairCARGO

Thanks to automatic status updates, we have eliminated the margin of error and current KPI measurement is based only on reliable and aligned data.

Franco di Corcia,
Head of Logistics, GDA Spa

WHITE PAPER

Next Level Time Slot Management

Time slot management is a key component of the network effect that enables a streamlined end-to-end supply chain. While the application can help to reduce yard congestion, as part of the larger solution, it can enhance visibility, reduce manual tasks, and provide more value as part of the larger supply chain ecosystem. This in-depth white paper is the result of a survey conducted in collaboration with the ARC Advisory Group upon over 100 logistics professionals who share their vision for the future of time slot management.
